Why is there an investigation?
On February 22, 2022, TGNA announced an agreement for Standard General and Apollo Global to purchase all of the outstanding shares of TGNA for $24.00 per share in cash. The consideration also includes additional cash consideration in the form of a “ticking fee” where the price increases by incremental amounts starting with 5 cents per share per month if the closing occurs between the 9- and 12-month anniversary of signing, increasing up to 12.5 cents per share per month if the closing occurs between the 14- and 15-month of the anniversary of signing.
The agreement has been approved by the TGNA board.
Our investigation concerns whether TGNA’s board acted in the best interests of TGNA shareholders in approving the sale to Standard General and Apollo Global, including whether the acquisition price adequately compensates TGNA shareholders, and whether all information regarding approval of the transaction has been fully disclosed.
In particular, according to an analysis of Wall Street TGNA price targets in the last 90 days published on Seeking Alpha, at least one analyst has a price target for TGNA of $27.00 per share.
